it is one of the cutest and funniest books ever in georgian literature. Nodar Dumbadzes writing style is really light and easy to read and thats whats so appealing about his books and most importantly the balance of comedy and sadness has a great effect overall. Its a georgian classic and everybody needs to read it, i just finished it, took me like 3 days and i was crying a times, laughing , sometimes mad at the charactersand, it was really fun :)

In Drybridge Market (Tbilisi), I found a copy of "Granny, Iliko, Ilarion and I" (მე, ბებია, ილიკო და ილარიონი) by Nodar Dumbadze. This is a tale by turns humorous and melancholic of a village boy Zuriko, a feckless student, whose best friends are two neighbours, Iliko and Ilarion and his granny. The book is set in the shadow of wartime Georgia.

I read the English translation by Raissa Bobrova (published by Raduga in the USSR, 1985). My Georgian is not yet up to reading the original version. Both

The novel by Nodar Dumbadze narrates the mundanity of a godforsaken Georgian village, where “todays’ newspapers, or even yesterday’s do not exist, there are only week-old ones”; where the kids are preferred to work on land rather than study at school; where everyone knows all deeds and odds of one another. Soothing spirit of warm summer days, mature daily tasks carried out by children while the parents have gone to war, the strenuous personality of a bossy but loving grandmother are composing th ...more

Книжный вызов 2016. Книга 18 - Я, бабушка, Илико и Илларион.
Это первая книга Нодара Думбадзе, которую я прочитала. Где же я была раньше? Вопрос, который я задавала себе с первых строк романа. Это история о дружбе, первой любви, верности и преданности.
Герои романа настолько живые и яркие персонажи. Они сразу же становятся твоими друзьями. Зурико, Зурикела - главный герой - обычный грузинский парнишка, троешник и прогульщик, в то же время - поэт и романтик. Его дружба со старшими товарищами Илико

Wonderful, just wonderful book. Short stories that reminded me of Fazil Iskander who i love endlessly. Too bad it's so short.

ჩემთვის სრულიად გამორჩეული რამეა - ესაა პირველი არასაბავშვო რომანი, რომელიც წავიკითხე... ამან მიმახვდრა რო სერიოზული წიგნების კითხვა აწორებს. ამაზე მეტი რა უნდა ქნას?

გენიალური ნაწარმოებია. გუშინაც ვიხსენებდი ნაწყვეტებს. მიყვარს დუმბაძეც და მისი შემოქმედებაც. ერთდოულად ბავშვური, სასაცილო, სევდიანი და სულში ჩამწვდომია.

one of the most hilarious and heartwarming books I've ever read. A childhood favorite. I read it once every couple of years and still crack up at Zoriko's adventures.
